Augmented Reality (AR)

AR enhances the real-world environment by overlaying digital information or virtual objects onto the user’s view.
Examples: Popular applications include Snapchat filters, Pokémon GO, and navigation apps that display directions on the real-world view through a smartphone camera.
Devices: AR can be experienced through smartphones, smart glasses, and other wearable devices.

Virtual Reality (VR)

VR creates a fully immersive, computer-generated environment that users can interact with. It completely replaces the real world with a simulated one.
Examples: VR is commonly used in gaming, simulations, and training programs. VR headsets like Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR provide immersive experiences.
Devices: VR requires specialized hardware like VR headsets, motion controllers, and sometimes external sensors for tracking.

Both AR and VR have applications across various industries, including:

VR is widely used for immersive gaming experiences, while AR enhances mobile gaming and adds interactive elements to the real world.
Both AR and VR can be powerful tools for educational purposes, providing interactive and engaging learning experiences.
VR is used for medical training simulations and therapeutic applications. AR can assist surgeons with real-time information during procedures.
Real Estate:
AR can be used for virtual property tours, while VR can provide immersive walkthroughs of buildings and spaces.
AR and VR find applications in training, remote collaboration, and data visualization within the business environment.

AR can enable virtual try-on experiences, while VR can create virtual shopping environments or product demonstrations.

The development of AR and VR technologies continues to advance, offering increasingly realistic and interactive experiences. As technology progresses, these immersive technologies are likely to become even more integrated into our daily lives and various industries.
